Batter Up!

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted a card.  Unfortunately, being a school teacher in the midst of a busy school year doesn't make for a great crafting schedule.  I always look forwarrd to weekends when I can finally sit down and create some cards, and I get even more excited when I actually have time to photograph, post them, and link them to some challenges.
I made this boy's birthday card for one of my many newphews.  We have such a big family, so I'm always making cards for all their birthdays.  This one will go to Evan who is turning 9 next week.  He is a big baseball fan, and I think he will like this.  I used bits and pieces that I have left over from an old Cosmo Cricket line in my stash.  I used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks to dirty up the edges a little bit.

These are a few of my favorite challenges where I will be linking up my card.

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge Blog - Celebrating their 7th Birthday, so I am sharing a Birthday Card to help them celebrate!

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge #152 - They're celebrating their 6th Birthday, so I'm sharing my birthday card in this fun challenge.

CropStop Challenge Blog - Linky Party #14 - I used some great Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot) as sold at CropStop.

Thanks so very much for stopping by my blog.  I still don't have many followers, so I sure would love having you follow me if you will.  I'd be happy to do the same for you.  I sure would love hitting 100 followers eventually.  I know it takes time.

Have a beautiful weekend!
